McCloud Mercantile Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in McCloud
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Everything was incredible.
The Mathis couple, forgive me if I get their first names wrong, I am great at that but Kevin and Darlene go every extra step even the one that goes right off McCloud Falls for you.
We loved our room and just had a great time.
We have stayed at three places now over the years in Mc Cloud and some of those more than once but this was our first time here and will be the place for our family from now on in the town of McCloud especially with the Mathis Family at the wheel.

Cup Of Coffee,
The Blevins Family

Nothing better than pulling off the highway onto a beautiful tree-lined road and finding a small town to explore. That's especially true if it is the middle of the week, during low season and you get the welcome that is right for you. Evening arrivals will find little to see or do in McCloud but take a stroll and find your lodging. Be sure to eat before you get to town, White Mointian Café serves a hearty breakfast (included in your Metcantile lodging costs) and lunch only.

Opening the hotel door is like stepping back in time. Don't let the wide dark staircase scare you. Long but comfortably spaced stairs bring you to the landing from which the rooms, a common area and event space are accessed. The Friday George room is small but more than adequate and quite comfortable. From the lovely slanted tin roof to the private bath with a small club foot bathtub, this room is historically intriguing. The perfectly framed view of Mt Shasta is a delight at thigh light and sunrise.

Don't bypass the opportunity to wander through the Mercantile, an eclectic combination of touristy treasures, candies and good house wears stuff. The proprietor is a likeable person with tales to tell of the renovations of the historic structure and the open friendly nature of the best hosts everywhere.

When in McCloud take a turn for the clean, simple and historically significant, Mercantile Hotel.

I found the hotel interesting an unique, kind of "old timey." It was a trip into the past. The accommodations were quite excellent. I had a large king bed which was very comfortable. The cost was quite minimal and the breakfast was large and delicious. I'll return the next time I'm in the area.

The room was so beautiful, and the staff so willing to accommodate my climb of Shasta. We arrived during the mushroom festival, which we missed while climbing, but met many of the participants. Breakfast was good, bed was good, claw foot soaking tub was great - just what I needed.

Room Tip: I liked the Minnesota Room. Outside view to the festival was convenient!

Four of us were hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. We needed a place to spend the night before starting and a place to resupply 5 days later. The Mercantile Hotel was perfect. Beautifully resurrected from old train and lumber uses, very comfortable large rooms and impeccable hospitality. A wonderful surprise to find. We will be back.

This place was a great place to stay and hard to best the view of Mount Shasta. It made us feel right at home when one of the owners picket us up for no cost at the train station. The train came in at 1:30 am.and left at 4:30 am.

Room Tip: All rooms are special and you can not go wrong with any of them!!!

This old place has been masterfully and tastefully done by a couple from Big City CA. We looked at four rooms and were so impressed we had a problem deciding which one to stay in. Each is themed, done in the best of quality and taste.
We have looked at several inns like this one to purchase and renovate ourselves, and have some idea how much effort it takes to get a quality transformation. Exemplary.

Room Tip: Look at more than one room. You will never be more impressed with a hotel than you will be with this...
